Top Two Pieces of Home Gym Equipment to get you Strong & Conditioned from the Comfort of Your Home

Do you dread going to the gym? Are you tired of always being on the go? If so, you’re not alone. According to a study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, 71 percent of people who reported they don’t like going to the gym said they don’t because it is too uncomfortable. That’s why we’ve put together this list of top pieces of home gym equipment that you can use at home to get your strength and conditioning workouts done without leaving your comfort zone.

Here are our top two pieces of home gym equipment to get you strong & conditioned.

Home Gym Equipment: Multi-gyms

A multi-gym is designed to target all the major muscle groups in one compact workstation. They’re ideal if you’re familiar with weight-lifting equipment and like to work out at home.   The great thing about a multi-gym is that you can choose to incorporate different equipment into your workout routine. For example, if you’re a runner who also wants to get in some arm strength training and core conditioning, a multi-gym is the way to go.

A typical multi-gym will offer some of the following stations: chest press (including chest press, incline press and shoulder press), lat pulldown (including triceps pushdown), seated row, abdominal crunch, leg press, leg extension and leg curl, pectoral fly and rear deltoid, low pulley for bent over and seated rows, etc.  Multi-gyms vary from single to multiple weight stacks to accommodate a variety of users.

Multi-gyms are ideal for the novice weight trainer as they assist the user with the correct execution and form. These biomechanical features ensure that the user gets the results that they deserve. There are plenty of instructional online videos available online. These videos are an invaluable resource as they serve as a “virtual trainer”.

Simply choose the Multi-gym that suits your budget and space you have available at home and get started today.

 

Home Gym Equipment: Smith Machine

A Smith Machine is typically a free weight machine that consists of a horizontal barbell attached to two vertical metal rails with linear bearings or square tubing. The user stands between the rails to use the horizontal barbell to perform various exercises such as squats, bench press, shoulder press, etc.

Some Smith Machines are counterbalanced with a pulley system for smooth easy use. The machine helps to keep the user’s form correct and provides stability, which can be helpful for beginners.

Smith Machines have built-in safety features like safety bars and safety locking mechanisms. These safety mechanisms eliminate the need for a spotter and vastly reduce the risk of injury while isolating muscle groups during exercise. The limited range of motion means that any isolated exercise can be done with an emphasis on form, without fear of the bar moving in another direction.

The Smith Machine can be used for squats, bench presses, bicep curls and deadlifts to name a few. The variety of exercises that can be performed on a Smith Machine means that you can get the most out of your workout every time.  They offer a comprehensive range of upper and lower body conditioning exercises.

The benefits of using a Smith Machine:

  1. Smith machines are a great way to add weight to your workouts and can be used by people of all levels of experience.
  2. They are perfect for beginners because they help you learn the correct execution and form for each exercise before adding weight.
  3. Smith machines are also great for more advanced users as they allow you to lift more weight safely.
  4. They are a good option if you want to focus on strength training as they provide stability and support.

In conclusion, home gym equipment is a great way to build strength and get conditioned, but it is important to choose the right equipment and use it consistently in order to see results. So, if you are looking for a way to get in shape without leaving your home, consider investing in home gym equipment.

As soon as I was on the website there was someone assisting live on whatsapp. The assistance was clear and super helpful - I received all the information I wanted and needed and was able to purchase the product I wanted on the same day. I received the product two days later and it was installed the next day. Quick, friendly and efficient service. Two thumbs up.

I am so blown away by the excellent personal service given to me by Jason. This type of personalised service is what is needed in Cape Town. It's really not about Rands and cents but the human element and connection is what really matters. That cannot be bought.
